Reginald VelJohnson in Air Collision (2012)

Flight Panned

A fierce electromagnetic storm causes mass disruption in the atmosphere which in turn cripples communications and that is a nightmare for Bob Abbot (Reginald VelJohnson - The Three Gifts) and his team at the flight tower. The big problem comes from two planes, a commercial jet and then Air Force One which has both the President and his family on board with the planes on a collision course. With the military scrambled someone must find a way to save the day.

In "Jurassic Park" mathematician Ian Malcolm mentions chaos theory. I am going to mention chaos theory in this review of "Air Collision" because this movie feels like the writer and director has tossed as much chaos at it as they could. As such we have magnetic storms, planes on collision courses, giant holes in the ground, many characters who you won't remember their names, sickness on the commercial plane, the president on his plane, his flight crew shooting at a computer to try and gain control. And believe it or not I don't think I mentioned even half of the chaos which makes up "Air Collision" with the end result being a poor movie and one which is incredibly difficult to get interested in.

But the worst thing about "Air Collision" is the special effects. Now that may surprise you because you expect bad effects in this sort of made for TV disaster movie but there are not many scenes which use CGI and so for the few to be as bad as they are really adds to how much this movie sucks.

What this all boils down to is that I can't give you a single reason to watch "Air Collision", not even just so that you don't wonder about it next time it shows up on the TV schedule.
